ASIST: Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training

Experience ASIST

The ASIST workshop is for caregivers who want to feel more comfortable, confident and competent in helping to prevent the immediate risk of suicide. Over 750,000 caregivers have participated in this two-day, highly interactive, practical, practice-oriented workshop. Here's what participants have had to say:

The ASIST workshop is some of the best training I've received in almost 20 years as a naval officer. As a chaplain, I frequently deal with individuals in distress. The Suicide Intervention Model is a tremendously effective tool that will allow me to go much further in helping someone who is contemplating suicide. Thanks for your outstanding work in this area of critial importance!
